About the Speaker

Talk 2: Framework agnostic, zero-downtime Javascript app deployment

Deploying your Ember app can be tricky and slow if it is tied into your back end (Rails, etc). Learn how to independently deploy your front end (using tools like Ember-CLI and Grunt) directly into a CDN in seconds without downtime. Fei will talk about how this approach can be used for any back end and front end frameworks.
